huckle...berry


People make fun of us all the time (in the nicest way possible). 

"Hey your last name is Berry? Haha what kind of berry are you?" 
"Ha. Um, I'm a person."
"Hahaha you are a strawberry!" 
"Um. Okay."

It doesn't help that my nickname is Huckle. (Get it? Huckle-berry? Yeah yeah.) It makes me laugh and it is something quirky that I love about my family. So when we went berry picking last week, of course, the berry jokes ensued. And we laughed. And ate way too many berries off of the bushes.

My little sisters (shouldn't call them little... they are growing up so fast) took pictures with my camera and laughed and ran up and down the rows of blackberries. We quoted movies and stared through the bushes at the cute little family in the next row. It was one of those times where life slowed down and it was wonderful. 

I feel like I am trying to soak up as much summer as possible. Of course, I wouldn't trade my two months in Guatemala for anything. But these past three weeks has been wonderful. I have been having "real summer" adventures. Bonfires, stargazing, weekend trips, you know. So berry picking was just the icing on the cake. ;)
